OTOH a lot of people don't use their handbrake, ever - especially those who drive an automatic transmission. The risk here is that unless it's regularly used, the handbrake cable will be seized/severely rusted, and it just might snap when you do try to use it. Or it'll stay applied when you try to take it off.

My dad worked as a mechanic for over 4 decades, and his advice on that topic is, if you never use it, don't start out of the blue--for the reason stated above.

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
